Looks great Daniel, and I like the decals. Can't wait to see the final product. It will be a beauty and a beast. :thumbs:  :worshippy1:

Worked just a little while on Hogzilla and got a little headway.  At least enough to get an idea how it's gonna look.

  A ton of wires to unhook to do the dash panel right, so I opted to just tape over the gauges & switches instead.  Spray bombed metallic black on the panel. (I did remove the hour meter, as just 2 wires to pull off)

Then I applied the only 2 decals I've made at this point.

Still thinking on how to design the hood side decals.  There will be one "diesel" sticker on each side also, and likely "hydro" too.

At first when I sat the dash tower, hood, and seat base on, it looked like too much white, but then I applied the decals and realized when I get the hood side decals on, that the "too much white" feeling will be gone.  Decals always totally change the look for the better.

Looks Great, and Decal look Awesome as well.  I do not think it is to must white. Look forward to see the rest of the decals.

Most of the wiring is now hooked back up.  Soon to test all the circuits.  Slow is my speed these days, but I'm getting there.

Today I got all the wiring connections complete except for the rear PTO wires and battery cables.  But I never added a rear work light, and I have a nifty warning light so both may get mounted while I'm at it. Everything tested AOK at this point.

 Got all the hydraulic lines snugged up & painted a few parts satin black today also, plus mounted the throttle lever.  I had been worried I'd not get it ready by my plow day, but I should finish it easy enough.  I have to get seat bases cut soon & get to an upholstery shop.  Going back down to piddle on it some more after I finish this cup of coffee.

Got the PTO and rear light wires ran and PTO switch mounted.  Hooked up the battery cables and starter and everything working as it should.  Still need to paint & mount the air filter housing and install the fuel tank, then I'll be ready to fire her up again finally!

Despite having to spend most of the day catching all the heifers up (-5 that won't lock up), I've managed to get the rear work & caution lights mounted, battery, fuel tank back in, AND got her fired up!
